Advocacy Café is a series of 30-minute sessions designed to inspire ideas and stimulate discussion about advocacy. Free for SAA Members!
Session 1: Getting Started with Advocacy
Go beyond the “we need money/staff/space” syndrome in your advocacy efforts with the new Advocacy Café webinar series. In this first session, SAA Fellows and advocacy experts David Carmicheal and Kathleen Roe will lay the foundation for effectively engaging your stakeholders and advocating for your archives.
Upon completion of this webinar, you’ll know more about:
- The reasons why advocacy and raising awareness are essential activities for archivists
- Discussion about the types of advocacy/awareness archivists may want to pursue—internal advocacy with their own managers and administration; external advocacy with a range of users, records creators/donors, or the general public; and legislative advocacy
- Development advocacy goals for your institution
- About resources for further advocacy training
